Cheers Guys, let the thread slip away again. He's been doing his usual, in difficult conditions regards the site being busy. Will stick up some pictures the first was jackdaw from this morning. It flew under him has he climbed,bailed onto the parked up compactor and taken. I let him feed up on more suitable terrain. I try to make a concerted effort this time with the thread.

Feeding up, and on the cadge, still moulting

She's Still free lofted Jeff, looking really nice. The site is really busy with contractors, new cell and capping old one. There's pipe fitters also around the restored ground, so difficult for quarry. She would probably just start drifting a little off site, do want that so will give it some time yet.

Good going Tom, He looks as reliable as a swiss Watch! He must be a pleasure to fly. Steve.

Cheers Guys, he's an exceptional falcon. I just take him to his hunting ground (territory) and let him go. Then just watch, pick him up and go, he makes it look so easy.

He's had a couple of smaller birds this week, and today took a fine crow. Lovely weather today, with some really high flying. He was up with the Gods on several occasions, once with a wold tiercel. He took his crow with a brilliant stoop, killing it stone dead in the stoop.

Didn't see the flight, but it was from a stoop. He shot off round the cell, found him on this jackdaw.
